TROY, Ala. (AP) -- Corey Robinson threw for 396 yards and three touchdowns as Troy beat Florida Atlantic 34-7 on Saturday.

The Trojans (3-7, 2-4 Sun Belt Conference) snapped a five-game losing streak, while the Owls (0-10, 0-7) remain the only winless team in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Robinson threw touchdown passes of 57 and 25 yards to Eric Thomas, who caught six passes for a career-high 128 yards. Thomas has nine touchdowns this season, tying a school-record at the FBS level.

Robinson, whose 396 yards were just eight off his career high of 404 set last year at UAB, also threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Khary Franklin.

The Trojans overcame three turnovers to win the game.

The game matched the nation's worst offense in FAU and the 114th-ranked defense in Troy. The Trojans held FAU to 291 yards, which was still 65 yards more than the Owls' average of 236.
